Destination URL is a Subdomain. Subdomain in Display, too?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

My destination pages are on a subdomain of my site. They are all on the same subdomain. Do I have to put the subdomain in the display URL? I have searched but cant find anything concise. The reason I ask is because with the subdomain the display URL is too long.

 

Simple yes or no answer: Can I exclude the subdomain in the display URL field?

Hi Charles,

 

Yes as long as the display and destination URL share the same top level domain name.

 

The policy page covers this: https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/6021546?rd=1#024

 

"Domain: The domains of your ad's display URL and landing page URL need to match. A domain is the core part of your website address. For example, the AdWords website ("google.com/adwords") and Help Center ("support.google.com/adwords") both share the same domain name of "google.com."
